Cornwall is leading the way in support for victims of sexual violence.

Charity Skoodhya is running the UK's first non-police out of hours service.

Two specially trained crisis workers will be available round the clock and live near to the centre.

Sally Piper heads up the Truro charity: "The significant is that actually because our crisis workers will live really close to the SARC, they can be there within half an hour so when somebody unfortunately gets raped, we will be there really quickly so that somebody doesn't have to wait around before they're seen by the doctor.

"If they do decide to report to the police, we want to make that process from then on as smooth and as easy for them as possible. In a way the worst thing has already happened to them and so anything we can do, actually, hopefully will make it - make their recovery a little bit better and help them cope with what's happened to them."
